Dina Asher-Smith has withdrawn from the Commonwealth Games with a hamstring injury.
Asher-Smith pulled up towards the end of her leg in the 4x100m relay event at the World Championships in Oregon last weekend, saying afterwards that her "legs had stopped corresponding" with her.
An assessment has subsequently revealed an issue that will stop her from competing in front of her home crowd.

"I love racing in front of a British crowd and was so excited to return to Birmingham, so I'm sad that I won't be there, but I know that the athletes will put on a great show.
"Wishing the best of luck to all my teammates!"
